> The "Live Music Forum" only seems to go back a few hours.

Unless you're smart enough to spot the "View more forum posts" link just below the forum.

> I also liked the old format of splitting a particular artist's shows into yearly blocks.

It was handy, unless you wanted some other way of grouping the shows, in which case, it was useless. The new system is much more flexible. And anyway, the Archive covers a WHOLE lot more than just live music. You might want to read the following:

i bet you are one of them rude kids who sit all day on the pc downloadin shows you never saw. some ppl arent adaptable to change. b4 you get rude you should think of that first.the issue is the same for all, no sufficient time to adjust . the new setup is just that new ,not many ppl have seen a setup like this . i would never pay to download anything when i could just go see the show and tape it for my own personal consumption. to be honest this site has never run well and im sure even with a new setup the same problems will arise. way to many cooks spoil the soup.i dont know you from squat but if you said rude crap to me in person id have to take up the issue with you.lets use a lil common sence when directing responses to these threads. you never know when someone takes it personally have a good day peace

Well, first, I'm not a rude kid, I'm a rude old fart.

And let me get this straight. You're saying that it's ok to be rude to the people who donate their time and energy to make this site work, but it's not ok to be rude to those who are themselves rude, and who whine a lot and (usually) contribute nothing? I'm sorry, but I respectfully disagree. Not that I think I was particularly rude, in any case. Especially not compared to some (most?) of the critics of the new system.

Note that I was one of the first to start pointing out problems with the new system:

http://www.archive.org/iathreads/post-view.php?id=60452

But I did so politely. I did not start out by accusing anyone of trying to destroy the Archive or ruin people's lives or any of the other nonsense I've seen tossed around in the last couple of days. If my patience seems to have worn thin, it's because I like and respect the people who maintain the Archive, and am tired of seeing them insulted and harrassed!

no man im sayin its not nice to be rude period and there is alot of it in here for sure. there are other ways to speak to ppl so they get your point. dont resond to the rude ones is a start.things arent running smooth(and havent in some time) and after all we are the users . we want it more friendly in use and ppl.do you just go out and buy a random car, well think of it as this is wat we want since we use it. maybe the mods can back us up maybe they cant. sooner or later it wont be cost effective for anyone.esp if we all find other sites now will it. wasnt the grateful dead about peace and unity. this isnt peaceful its annoying like a wsp show lol

> dont resond to the rude ones is a start.

Indeed, yet you seemed to think you were justified in responding to me (fairly rudely, I might add).

> we are the users

Yes, we are. Are you trying to suggest that only users who whine about change have opinions that matter? Why doesn't a user like me, who thinks the Archive is doing a great job, considering their limited resources, have a right to an opinion too? And a right to be upset at what's going on (by which I mean the whining and insults at the Archive and its volunteers)?

edit: p.s. this is the Internet Archive, not the "Grateful Dead Archive." So what the Grateful Dead were about hardly seems relevent. Anyway, I'm done with this thread.

yup just as i thought you are the only one who uses this site and your rude opinion is all that counts and you deadheads are the ones who complain the most. when it becomes a grateful dead site (soon i hope) we wont hear from you any longer. am i correct not to be rude myself but you must not contradict yourself since youre a user and not a mod .to bad only myself thinks peace is relevent here esp since the mods are adults and are capable of defending themselves, being rude is just a reflection of all that is wrong with this site
